Peter Lucas! [In reply to] Can't Post

Oh boy...indecisive much?

Oh well, truth be told I much prefer the new title BUT nothing will save these films...nothing. Horrible cgi infested garbage!

Though you don't think so because of our "love everything pj does bubble" these films will be treated exactly as the sw prequels -they will be forgotten and mocked by all but a few die hards.

What a waste... Mad

Enjoy reading the Silm it's a rougher one than The Hobbit or LOTR but worth it!

Got ya [In reply to] Can't Post

I follow ya now. That makes more sense and I will be less disagreeable to the say something like the first pirates film. Though, I still think these films have plenty of the emotions that I love from the book.

I do understand. I love these Hobbit films but I think the LOTR films are better. They do come from better material overall I think so that does help.

Hope I didn't come across to grumpy. It's just I find these Hobbit films less fun to talk about as things have gone on.

Wow! Is it free-beer night at Barli? Or just Bilbo opening the door to a tumble of dwarves? [In reply to] Can't Post

I leave for a few hours and come back to a HIVE! So now we can move on with TH3 and stop fretting about the DOS EE's length. And let's not forget: thanks to the Grey Pilgrim for breaking this, even before it got on the TORn homepage. Great work!


'And so: "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" it is.'
The "the" in the new title implies there are only 5 armies, doesn't it? To avoid confusion around these parts, BotFA=TH3: The movie coming out this December, BoFA=teh event?

The movie is pretty much made at the this point. In fact it was probably decided with the pickups last year. So I agree with those who believe the title is marketing-directed, not story or story alteration.


'As Professor Tolkien intended, “There and Back Again” encompasses Bilbo’s entire adventure, so don’t be surprised if you see it used on a future box-set of all three movies.'
Can't wait. The logic for the title change makes sense. But by box-set, what does it mean? Director's cut of the trilogy? More extras? Alternate retelling/editiion/plots?


'And there’s also The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Extended Cut, which we’re in the process of finishing, with over 25 mins of new scenes, all scored with original music composed by Howard Shore.'
I'm holding PJ to that "over 25mins", especially the "over" bit please.

Still, after the meagre 13 we got for AUJ I am cautiously optimistic about getting the good stuff. Except for the truly obvious bits in that EE, I could barely discern where the extensions were, unlike the LotR EEs. Mad And my sis kept asking me if we're sure we got the right one.

I want the character stuff, and please no extensions for that she-elf or that 3-sided relationship thingy unless it's necessary!


'It’ll be a fun year!'
So much to look forward to!

Better get your last word in before the mods lock this Precious, folks!Tongue

Overall I'm o.k. with this change [In reply to] Can't Post

I've always felt that TABA was a better title for the overall trilogy arc.
So basically changing the name to what the film is going to be about
seems a bit more logical.
Also I can see PJ and the studios using the TABA name for complete
trilogy sets in the future.

Glad we get more Howard Shore scoring and what looks to be 25 min of
additional footage for the EE.

While I do at times have mixed feelings about what can appear to be the
money grab I understand it. Without the LOTR films making alot of $$
there would be no Hobbit films. Backers done put up the funds unless they
see themselves getting something back.
